Trick Automated Callers Into Never Calling You Again

(Image is used under the Pixabay license)

From the, "that's freaking brilliant!" department, someone figured out that there's a phone tone that means "vacant circuit", or in layman's terms, there's no phone here. When an automated dialer gets that, they erase the phone number from their records so they don't waste their valuable time and money (as if ours wasn't). So what he did was download the tone from the Internet and put it as the first thing on his answering machine.

As long as you don't belong to a school system or work for someone who uses auto-dialers, this is pretty cool.
